Underground Lovers

One of Australia's best-kept musical secrets is Underground Lovers, which peddles a distinctive brand of guitar-influenced synth-pop, not unlike the sort put out by the legendary Depeche Mode and New Order. Which means lots of streamlined guitar riffs, intelligent usage of synth chords and impeccable pop smarts. Check out two videos from this woefully under-recognised collective: the lush "Losin' It", which sounds remarkably like "Technique"-era New Order, and "Your Eyes", a coolly detached ambient-pop nugget that beats the Beloved at their own game.
